DHTML - animation can't keep up with user
First of all, the following script has only been tested in FireFox (and on Firefox vs. 1.0.6 mac OS 10.2.8) -- I'm fairly sure the following script won't work in IE without some script changes/workarounds/etc.... I do not have access to IE right now or I would try to get it working there as well...
I've been trying to write a script that lets users put a list in order by dragging and dropping. The script works (to an extent), but if the user clicks and drags something too fast, everything gets fairly messed up. I think the problem is that I'm trying to animate the drag/drop process, and it's possible for a user to be faster than the script/computer can think....
For example, the following script works fine if you drag/drop slowly, but try shaking the mouse crazily, and everything gets messed up....
script is here

I haven't read you script but i think you can change the code such that the div's are replaced only after dropping the div (i.e) only when selecting and then the cliking is completed i think you can take a look on google.com's personalized page where the similar condition is handled nicely.
I'll reply u after seeing the code.

I've tested this, and actually it DOES work in IE (much to my surprise)...
Can anyone shed some light on this?
Here's the url again for the testing page/script.

This script seems to have the same problems regardless of the browser used.
Does ANYONE have an idea about what causes this?
I'm assuming that no one has had any ideas because the script is too long, messy, uncommented, or complicated.....(or all of these )
please let me know which case it is....so that I can adjust the question accordingly
